“His True Arte of Defense”

Giacomo di Grassi, 1594

“His True Arte of Defense, plainly teaching by infallible Demonstrations, apt Figures and perfect Rules the manner and form how a man without other Teacher or Master may handle all sorts of Weapons as well offensive as defensive: with a treatise; of deceit or falsing; and with a way or means by private industry to obtain strength, judgement, and activity.”
